Let your voice be heard

A magnificent tribute to the female voice and women’s suffrage.

To mark International Women's Day, the Göteborg Opera celebrates the female voice and the 100th anniversary of the first Swedish parliamentary election in which women were allowed to vote. In a magnificent concert with Sopranos Sofie Asplund and Carolina Sandgren, court singer Katarina Karnéus, the Göteborg Opera's Women's Chorus and the Göteborg Opera Orchestra, conducted by Henrik Schaefer, we enjoy music by female composers from the 19th century to the present day. 

The richly varied concert programme includes “Helios”, an oboe concerto by multi-award-winning Scottish-American composer Thea Musgrave (b. 1928) – featuring oboe soloist Geoff Cox, “Callirhoë” (Ballet Symphonique, Op. 37) by French composer Cécile Chaminade (1857-1944), four songs by Hungarian-Croatian composer Dora Pejačević (1885-1923) featuring soloist Katarina Karnéus, and Gothenburg composer Elfrida Andrée's (1841-1929) “Cantata at the International Congress for Women's Suffrage" – finally performed again after 110 years. The concert ends with the anthem of the women’s suffrage movement: “The March of the Women” by Dame Ethel Smyth (1858-1928) .

All audience members are invited to arrive slightly earlier for an inspiring introduction to the works  – and an informal run-through of the concert’s final piece, “The March of the Women”, in which the whole audience can join in.
